Jump to new posts Pulling the action on a 1905 Chickering Model 116 by Jake Jackson @ Today at 07:48 PM

I just acquired this piano,and from what I can see, the action was at some point pulled and then replaced incorrectly, so that some dampers do not rest correctly on several strings (one damper even rubs against a bar that is part of the frame), and s

Ian, I would not like a client to talk about stretch before tuning. I say this because of my experience that such clients are very difficult to please. I think it is best to let the tuner decide how they tune. If you dont like the result then try ano

Improvising Blues Piano is more approachable. It sticks with and builds off the Major chord structures for most of the book and only introduces minor and diminished chords at the end. The Exploring Jazz Piano books starts off with Major triads in all

So this piano is still for sale, and I have a friend of a friend who may be interested in it. I looked at this piano back in April, a tech checked it out and said it needed some regulation and a tuning, but that it's hardly been played. It was bought

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Casio PX-5S is 24.47 lbs with a nice 88k weighted action in its price class (a little jiggly but feels pretty good). It can run a long time on 8 AA batteries. But no built in speakers, not that they'd be adequate in most noisy situations. It's 52.
